From Texas Chronicle, Nacogdoches, Saturday, October 28, 1837, Volume 1:

The New Town of Huntsville

This place is handsomely situated between the San Jacinto and Trinity, about fifteen of twenty miles from the latter on a beautiful elevated plain, the town is laid out so as to include in part a small sandy prairie, and has within its limits, on the north-east corner of the public square, three flush running and never failing springs of the best kind of cool and fresh free-stone water, and a bayou running full bold all the year, crosses the southwest corner of the town; heading one or two hundred yards above where it cuts the boundary line.

This site certainly possesses such advantages of health as cannot be exceeded by any location for a town in the Republic of Texas. From its contiguity to navigation, it combines more commercial advantages than any other place within the limits of the country. It is sufficiently far from the river to avoid the poisonous miasma that arises from stagnant waters of the Trinity and yet sufficiently near for all commercial purposes. Already a school has been established within the town; and impetus has been given to its commercial energies by the establishment of a mercantile house-an inn, with excellent accommodations-a black smith's shop and establishment of saw and grist mills in the vicinity.

A more tempting opportunity for profitable investments has seldom been offered to the capitalists of Texas. For terms, which will be liberal, apply to the proprietor on the premises.

Affidavit made by C. K. Keenan (copy in file)

Pleasant Gray left Huntsville, Walker County, Texas with his son, Michael Gray, and traveled to Independence, Missouri. He wrote a letter back home that was published in the Texas Banner newspaper in an issue dated 6 May 1849. From the profile by Shirley Scott Dye in file "He told what was happening and that all were well and if anyone wanted to write to them, they must direct their letters to New Helveton or to Sutter's Fort. Later, another letter was received by the Texas Banner from a man who was with Pleasant when he died. The article in the paper stated, 'An old citizen of Texas and the original proprietor of Huntsville, Texas, died of cholera on his way to California about 400 miles beyond the Missouri line.' Hannah was left a widow with six children at home. She remained in Huntsville until 1856, then with her family sold their land went to California."

1 Sep 1849, Huntsville Item, "Col. Pleasant Gray Dies"

Death of Col. Pleasant Gray, an old citizen of Texas and original proprietor of Huntsville

He died of cholera on his way to California about 400 miles beyond the Missouri line as we learn from a gentleman who accompanied him. Col. Gray possessed many pecularities though he had many good traits in his character. He was a bold adventurer and a man of extraordinary energy. Had he lived to reach California, he would have figured conspicuously in that country. Col. Gray has left an affectionate wife and a large family of children to deplore his untimely death.

See the advertisement of Mrs. Gray for sale of land and negroes. The lady is about to migrate to California much to the inconvenience of many, a fair matron among us. But it can't be helped. Mrs. Gray has been here ever since the public square was a wild prairie but as she has amended to go to the golden state some one else will have to take her place. It may be hard to find her equal.

From Family Pride, by Frances Barker Larson, page 53:

"A hand written sheet in the Gray family Bible gives us the obituary of Hannah Gray from the Chico Democrat. It also offers us a genealogical puzzle.

[Died] At the residence of her son Mike Gray, San Mateo, December 21st, Mrs. Hannah Gray in the 58th year of her age. [This would then have been 1867.] Mrs. Gray was born in North Carolina and emigrated to Texas in 1836. [1834] In 1856, she came to California and was long a resident of Marysville where the writer first made her acquaintance.

Mrs. Gray was a fond and affectionate parent and was made happy by seeing her children grow up

and become respected and useful members of society. Possessing a heart that sympathized with human suffering she was ever found ministering to the wants of the sick and afflicted. Mrs. Gray resided in the county with her children. D. C. Gray [David] and Mrs. William Sharkey [Amanda Texanna]. She has left a monument in the hearts of all who knew her to attest to her moral worth.

Signed with initials R. H. O'F

Notes for Michael Gray:

General Notes:

In 1860, members of household are Michael Gray (age 33, Texas); Sarah A. Gray (age 30, Missouri); Mary Gray (age 6, California); Amanda Gray (age 2, California); John P. Gray (age 4/12, California); Nancy Gray (age 14, Texas); and Ephraim "Pewet" (age 23, Texas). Michael Gray was a miner and owned $1,700 of real estate and $5,000 of personal assets. Relationship of Ephraim Pewitt is not known. Ephraim Pewitt is likely a first cousin, son of Hartwell Pewitt and Edna Gray Pewitt, but proof not established. Nancy (or Nanny) Gray was a black girl Michael Gray brought with him from Texas. She is enumerated with the family in 1860 and 1870. See excerpt below.

In 1870, members of household are Michael Gray (age 43, Tennessee); Sarah A. Gray (age 40, Missouri); Amanda Gray (age 16, California); Mary Gray (age 12, California); John "T." Gray (age 10, California); Dixie Lee Gray (age 8, California); Betty Gray (age 23, Texas); Emma Fish (age 10, California); Ida Fish (age 8, California); and Nancy Gray (age 23, Texas). Michael Gray was the city marshall and owned $500 of real estate and $500 of personal assets.  Note that the ages of Mary Gray and Amanda Gray are reversed in 1870 from 1860 census. Their brother, John Plesent Gray, states that Mary Gray was born in 1854 and Amanda Gray was born in 1858. The two Fish girls are daughters of Prosper W. Fish and his first wife, Mary. The relationship to the family, if any, is not known. Prosper Fish lived in Yuba County, California in 1850, and Sutter County, California in 1870. His wife, Mary, apparently died since he is single and working as a policeman in Gilroy, Santa Clara County, California where Michael Gray is serving as marshall. Note that Emma Fish* is also boarding with the Charles family in 1880 with John Plesent Gray.




* Excerpt from When All Roads Led to Tombstone:  A Memoir by John Plesent Gray, page 145: "At Rucker in those early days, was a girl--for Emma Fish was always a girl even when the years might convince one that she had reached old maidhood--who was a natural born entertainer. She

played the guitar and could sing with a charm and sweetness that we never wearied of. If I should be asked if Em was a pretty girl, I would have to answer, "I don't know." But she was always cheerful.

Once I overheard a Texas cowpuncher say, "There's a girl at Rucker just as pretty as a red wagon"--and everybody likes a red wagon.

Emma had been a member of our family since she was ten years old. She was one of those rare spirits who dance through life with a smile. Though she had suitors galore, she was always friendly to all but partial to none, always remaining a young old maid."

In 1880, members of household are Mike Gray (age 53, Tennessee); Sarah A. Gray (age 50, Missouri); M. Hall (age 22, California, daughter); D. L. Gray (age 18, Sonora, son); and Philip Montigue (age 23, Ohio, boarder). Michael Gray if the Justice of the Peace and his son, Dixie Lee Gray, works as a bookkeeper.

In 1900, Michael Gray (age 73, Tennessee, widowed) is living with his son, John Plesent Gray, and his family. His occupation is stated capitalist.

From When All Roads Led to Tombstone: A Memoir by John Plesent Gray:

Pages 140-141: Nancy (or Nanny) Gray "With us on the trip was our constant and faithful attendant, the colored girl, Nannie. I mention her with a tender feeling for her memory. My father had brought her from Texas as a small child in the 1849 trek across the plains to California. Nannie became a member of my mother's family, grew up with us children, and spent her whole life in a faithful, undivided affection for the family. She never married and her ever-loyal devotion to our family remained during all her good life. For, though colored, she was just one of those women that Booker

Washington tells about, who ever remained loyal to their old white masters--"Nursing them in sickness, feeding them in want, and burying them in death." What would the South after the war have done without them?"


Pages 136-137: "My father, Mike Gray, was born in the backwoods of Tennessee in 1827, and moved with his parent to Texas in 1831. They settled on the spot where the town of Huntsville has since grown into one of that state's big cities.




At the age of fourteen, he enlisted in the army being organized by General Sam Houston for the defense of that new country. He always remembered that date as it was then he donned his first pair of pants--a necessary covering required by a soldier. Previously, like all boys of that time and country, he had worn only a long-tail hickory shirt, and always went barefoot.




Father followed Colonel Jack Hayes throughout the Mexican War, and reached the rank of first lieutenant.




In 1849, his family joined the great migration of the covered wagon, starting from St. Joseph, Missouri for California. On this long trek, he and my mother first met. She, Sarah Ann Robinson, was also on her way with her parents in search of the promised land, leaving the old family home on the banks of the little St. Francis River in Missouri, with all its home comforts discarded forever, to follow that mirage of gold into the far West.




My mother often told us in later years that even the old folks had unbounded enthusiasm as they pulled out of St. Joe. But many of the elder ones fell by the wayside long before the journey ended, for it was mainly the young who could stand the strain of the hardships encountered.

The cholera swept across the plains taking its toll mainly on the old. The elder Gray was buried on the banks of the Platte in what is now western Nebraska, and my father carried on as captain of the wagon train. Mother's parents lived through the trip but did not live long after settling in California. Her two younger sisters and brother became her charge in that new land. It was a grievous mistake that the old folks ever left the old Missouri home. They crossed the Sierra Nevadas by the northern route, close to the present Oregon line, thus avoiding the dangers that befell the unfortunate Donner party in the high Sierras.


I have often  heard my mother say that it was one of the happiest experiences of her life, riding most of the way horseback across that vast stretch of prairie and uninhabited land--uninhabited except for a few wandering Indian tribes. They had no trouble with these, probably because their train of covered wagons was well organized and had a large number of young men whom my father had organized into a scouting party which kept well in advance of the wagons.

The long trek ended when they arrived on the banks of the Feather River in California. Most of the party settled there on land that becamse part of the new Yuba County, which was formed the



Generation 2 (con't)

following year--1850--when California was admitted to the Union. Marysville was made the county seat, and it was there that Father and Mother were married."




Pages 140-143, continued: "Mother was a typical pioneer woman, following wherever the wanderlust of father seemed every leading him. And he was one of those restless pioneers who could not stay in one place for long.




When the Civil War broke out, father, being a Southerner by birth, was naturally in sympathy with the Confederacy. That feeling, and the prevailing Union sentiment in California, as well as what he thought was a better chance to aid the South, led father off on a mining venture to the west coast of Mexico. In the following winter of 1861 and '62, Mother followed him there with myself, then a

year-old baby, and my older sisters of three and five years. At Guaymas in 1862, my younger brother was born. He was christened Dixie Lee in honor of the South and its heroic leader. . .




We lived during most of our Mexican venture in Mazatlan. Father was mining in the back country and doing well. The the Maximillian War came on and upset that land. His mules and freight wagons on the road to the mine would be confiscated first by French troops and then by Mexicans. It became impossible to make a move without serious trouble. So, one day, when the Panama steamer touched Mazatlan on its northward trip, Father bundled us al aboard the old side-wheeler, Brother Jonathan, and off we went to San Francisco. . .




Then came 1872, the year of the famous hoax, mostly a forgotten incident now. It was the diamond discovery on the San Juan River in northeast Arizona. William T. Ralston and Colonel Harpington, both always ready to back adventure, sent for my father. Soon he was off on another wild goose chase, as Mother termed. them. . .

In 1876, Father picked up his prospector pick and struck out for Mexico. He was in Sonora when he heard of Ed Schieffelin's find at Tombstone, so he saddled his mule and was among the first on the ground.

And in 1879. Mother and my sister and brother answered his call. . ."


Page 145: "My father was one of those old line Democrats who would always mention the opposing party as 'black Republicans'--their war time appellation. He was a member of the lower house of the Arizona Territorial Legislature for so many years that he was termed, 'the Father of the House.' [Footnote 136: Apparently no record is extant of Michael Gray having been called the 'Father of the House.' He was, however, a member of the Territorial House of Representatives for eight years, between 1887 and 1901, serving unconsecutive terms. In 1887, his place of residence is listed as Benson; in 1893, Rucker; in 1899 and again in 1901, Pearce (a mining town that is today a ghost town), all in Cochise County.]"


From Family Pride by Frances Barker Larson, Page 52:




The obituary which appeared in the Tombstone Prospector in 1906, reads:




Information has been received here of the death of Col. Mike Gray in San Francisco on the 8th inst. .

.Numbered among the early pioneers of Arizona, Col. Gray was beloved by all who knew him. Deceased was 78 years of age. His was an eventful life, full of the fortunes and vicissitudes of pioneer existence, and he contribtued in no small measure to make history for Arizona, the home he loved so well. Mr. Gray had lived in Arizona for a great many years and was one of the best known men in southern Arizona. He had served the territory in various ways, most signally perhaps as a member of various sessions of the legislature."

Notes for Sarah Ann Robinson: General Notes:

From When All Roads Led to Tombstone: A Memoir by John Plesent Gray:




Page 144: "In a dim old photo fo the Rucker Ranch house, my mother can be seen standing just inside the gate. Always was she ready to welcome the stranger at the gate. Wherever her lot was cast, she made that place seem like home to all. That she did this, none can deny.




Even the many army officers who passed Rucker in the Apache days seldom missed a chance to accept Mother's hospitality, for her good cooking was known to all. Even newly fledged West Pointers, always the most fastidious in their wants and habits, would praise the bounteous dinners at Rucker, even though they were shocked at first to see the pie come with the soup."




Michael Gray and Sarah Ann Robinson were married on 29 Sep 1852 in Marysville, Yuba County, California[34, 35]. They had the following children:

Notes for Richard Lee Gray: General Notes:

From When All Roads Led to Tombstone: A Memoir by John Plesent Gray, page 54:




"I had planned to return to Tombstone to resume my work at the post office after a short lay-off, which had been given me so that I might help get our ranch started. My brother, however, begged me to remain at the ranch another week, as he wished to go to Tombstone and would return in that time. I consented and he rode off--to his death.




Often a trifling incident or change of plan leads to success or disaster. The day before brother Dick was to start, we heard that Lang's ranch, about ten miles southeast of us, was starting a hundred head of beef cattle for the Tombstone market and would camp in Guadalupe Canyon the following night. It occurred to us that it would be best for Dick to go that route and camp that night with Lang's outfit, as they would have five or six men which was a big enough force, it seemed, to scare off any bunch of Mexicans who might be out to avenge the smuggler train disaster. If this had not come up, Dick would have gone the more direct route I had followed through Skeleton. But fate ruled otherwise, and Dick rode into a trap without a chance in the world to escape alive.




I saw him ride gaily off on a Friday, and on the following Sunday, August 12, 1881, I next saw his dead body in Guadalupe Canyon with a bullet hole over his heart. Our first news of the tragedy came to the ranch on Saturday evening. A man by the name of Harry Earnshaw staggered into our camp in an exhausted condition, and it was some little time before he could tell the story. . ."

Henceforth it is known by oldtimers as the ancient city and pueblo. And soon all roads were leading to Tombstone. The news and later strike and on July 4 of 1880 was the big day when the town of Benson was started and became the stations from where the stages left for Tombstone. I road to Benson that day on Handy

Notes for Ted Glenn Gray: General Notes:

From Wikipedia:




Ted Glenn Gray (born December 31, 1924, in Detroit, Michigan) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball who played eight seasons with the Detroit Tigers (1946, 1948-1954), and then had short stints during the 1955 season with the Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Indians, New York Yankees, and Baltimore Orioles.




A native Detroiter, Gray was a star pitcher at Highland Park High School. He signed with the Tigers in 1942 at age 17 and played the 1942 season with Winston-Salem in the Piedmont League, posting a 13-14 records and 2.04 ERA. He briefly joined the Tigers at the end of the 1942 season but did not play.




Gray enlisted in the Navy when he turned 18 after the 1942 season. Gray was assigned to the Great Lakes Naval Training Station where he pitched for the Great Lakes team manged by Mickey Cochrane. Tigers pitchers Schoolboy Rowe and Dizzy Trout also pitched for Cochrane's star-studded Great Lakes team. Gray was transferred to the New Hebrides in the Pacific Theater, where he continued pitching for the Navy. He won 12 straight games and averaged 17 strikeouts per game in his Navy career. In January 1945, he pitched for the Navy All Stars. He lost his first game against the Army All Stars 3-1 despite striking out 19 batters. In three games against the Army All Stars, Gray ad a 1-2 record and a remarkable 46 strikeouts.  After the series, The Sporting News reported" "You can't tell any of the fellows in this war sector that when peace is restored, Ted Gray won't match the records of Grove, Hubbell, Pennock, Newhouser and the other great left handers." (The Sporting News, February 22, 1945).




After the war, Gray played with Buffalo before joining the Tigers for a brief stay in 1946. He pitched only three games in the Major League in 1946 (an 0-2 record) and was returned to the minors where he spent the balance of the 1946 season and the entire 1947 season.

Gray returned to the Tigers in 1948, posting a record of 6-2.




Though Gray never lived up to the expectations that were created by his wartime performance, he became part of the Tigers starting rotation from 1949-1953. In 1949, Gray won 10 games and had a career-best 3.51 ERA.




Gray then got off to a phenomenal start in 1950, winning 10 games before the All-Star

break. He was selected for the American League All-Star team but ended up as the losing pitcher in the 1950 All Star Game after giving up a game-winning home run to Red Schoendienst in the 14th inning. After the All Star game, Gray failed to win another game for the remainder of the year, finishing with a 10-7 record.




Gray reportedly suffered from chronic blisters that hindered his performance.




In 1951, Gray's downward slide continued as he led the American League in losses with a record of 7-14. And in 1952, Gray was among the league leaders in losses with 17 (third most in the American League) and earned runs allowed with 103 (3rd most in the American League).




Gray was a power pitcher who was known for his forkball and ranked among the American League leaders in strikeouts four consecutive years from 1950-1954.
